Rain Drops Keep Falling On My Head…

12 Jun

Hubby arrived home from work yesterday and the first thing he said was have you not got the football on the telly! To be honest i used to quite enjoy watching a bit of England play but im starting to think that may have just been watching David Beckham running around in his shorts!. So I thought lets take the dogs out and leave the Hubby with the little dude to have some male bonding over the football.

Now don’t get me wrong I love my dogs but walking them in the rain isn’t one of my favourite things but yesterday I had what can only be described as Fun, with a capital F!. MeMe the MinPin didn’t fancy it she’s not fond of the rain (bless her little high maintenance heart). But Brucie the Labrador cannot get enough no matter what the weather.

The rain wasn’t at its heaviest but looked like it was building again for another massive downpour so I decided not to go too far from home so I could get home fast if it did start to chuck it down. I’m really lucky where I live as its like a dog walkers dream with fields and hills only a stones throw away. So off I set ball thrower in hand to our local gallops,this was the view to the fields the other-side of the valley. Mmmm just look at all that lovely sunshine on this beautiful June Day…Not!


It’s hard to miss that it hasn’t stopped raining the past few days but I have never seen rain settle as much as it has, so this was the last thing I was expecting to see huge deep puddles in a place which is usually pretty dry! So Hunter Wellie’s yes Gold Hunter Wellie’s at the ready me and Brucie had some fun Running through the Puddles playing Chase and his ultimate favourite thing catching his ball!



Luckily there was no one else out walking and if there were I think they would have made a swift walk pass after looking at the mad dog lady belly laughing with her crazy Labrador! Some parts of the puddles were deeper than my Wellie’s and at one point I got kind of stuck and ended up quite soaked.






After all that fun it was time to go home, a bath for Brucie to wash all that puddle water off, Labradors are more absorbent than sponges.

So here’s to embracing this wonderful wet June!



Photo Friday

18 May

Us Doolallytat Girls love our Ipad 2’s makes life so much easier than getting the old laptop out. I love the fact you dont have to wait ages for it to turn on…unlike my laptop. That its nice and light and doesn’t feel like its going to burn a hole in my leg…unlike my laptop, and that the screen is so sharp…unlike my laptop.

The thing im slightly disapointed in is how bad the camera on it is unless you take a photo in full beam daylight I feel the photos have a tendency to look really grainy. I know the new and improved iPad has a nice zingy camera so they must have known the camera wasn’t all that great on the iPad 2, but hey if they didn’t make things better each time who would buy the new one!

I regularly use Snapseed to sharpen up my photos and most of the time what was a not so great a photo turns into something that can sometimes even look quite good. This week I discovered the joy that is Instagram and I’m now I’m back in photo taking mode and have been taking pictures of everything and anything.

So I thought that maybe the Doolallytat Girls would start a new post on a Friday called wait for it…… Photo Friday so without further ado….. Drum roll please for the first Photo Friday…





We hope you enjoyed just a taste of what hopefully will become Photo Friday and have inspired you to have a photo fabulous weekend.
